The Ohio Supreme Court won’t reconsider a ruling that could cost the state millions of dollars in payments to coal companies. In a four-to-three ruling on December 18th, the court ruled the state must pay R-T-G incorporated for coal on land the company owns in Guernsey county. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources deemed the land unsuitable for mining because it sits on an aquifer that is the primary water source for the village of Pleasant City. Ohio law requires the state to pay for land it decides must be served for the public interest.
